Editorial Reviews

John Condon
This is a beautiful book-thoughtful, insightful, personal, practical. A perfect companion for the serious traveler, student abroad or expatriate traveling on the deepest cultural journey.
Stefan Meister
Beyond shedding fresh light on intercultural perspectives, A Beginner's Guide to the Deep Culture Experience is a profound search for what makes us human. A highly recommended read for anyone wanting to learn more about the patterns of meaning that move us on cultural and individual levels.
Robert Whiting
Indispensable to those seeking to dig beneath the surface to find out why people in other countries behave as they do. Nobody does this sort of thing as well as Joseph Shaules.
